Storms On The Way

The morning paper says two storms are on the way, the first expected to hit Thursday. There was a sidebar telling people what they should have for a minimum of 7 days. That is quite an improvement over the 3 to 5 days they frequently talk about.

In late morning I went to CostCo to top off the gas and do some routine shopping. The gas line was out of the driveway and down the street for 12 gas pumps. Inside was full, but orderly, with people buying 5 to twelve flats of water each, 3 to six 50 pound sacks of rice each, multiple cases of Ramen noodles, multiple cases of canned soup, batteries galore, 5 to eight four packs of canned chicken or tuna, multiple 30 packs of toilet paper. I succumbed to panic and added a bag of paper plates to the list. Everyone seemed in good enough humor despite pretty long lines with all the check out counters open. I got through the check out line about 12:30 and heard they were out of water.
